{sf} operation coin-op

May 15, 2017

Did you know that on the last Sunday of the month you can throw away the fact that you’re an adult and go play all the old school arcade games you want for free?!? Yup, well at Coin-Op Game Room San Francisco, this is quite the reality. Now, let’s be honest, I didn’t step foot into a single arcade until like the two times this happened in college, but I hear that arcades were huge back when kids walked around with quarters in their pockets, inserted them into machines, and then engaged in some game for a few minutes until they lost and had to try again. Games like Street Fighter and Pac-Man were big during these times and going to Coin-Op it was pretty amazing to see all these adults (you have to 21+ since it’s essentially a bar with local and California beers on tap) get really into racing each other, throwing basketballs to try and beat the record, and shoot at the bad guys. And for sure it’s better when it’s free, right?
